Physically Challenged Persons Take To The Streets Of Ibadan to Protest

Heavy traffic has taken over Agodi – Secretariat axis of Ibadan as scores of physically challenged persons across the 33 Local Government Areas of Oyo State are protesting along the axis.

According to Ọ̀YỌ́ M’ÈSÌ Ọ̀RỌ̀, the protesters are demanding more slots in the non-teaching arm of the Oyo State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).

They alleged that their applications as non-teaching staff of TESCOM were largely disqualified.

According to DAILY POST, security agents among whom are police, DSS, Amotekun Corps and NSCDS have been drafted to the main gate of the Secretariat to prevent break down of law and order.

One of the protesters, Adegbuyi Adekunle appealed to Makinde to intervene.

He said, “We are protesting because of the TESCOM appointment, the non-teaching job.

“Most of our people were not given the appointment. Instead of giving to our people, the disabled, the able people have taken over.

“They are supposed to give us 5 per cent; that is 350. They gave us 149 instead of 350. That is the reason we are here. We want the Governor to prevail. We want the Governor to intervene.”
